Does Charcoal Absorb Odors?

Have you noticed less-than-savory scents in your home? Are you looking for a DIY solution? You may be surprised to learn that charcoal (like the charcoal briquettes used in your grill) can be used to absorb odors in your home.

Read on to learn how to remove odors in your home using charcoal.

  • There are many different types of charcoal available to consumers. From briquettes used for grilling to aquarium filter charcoal and even activated charcoal for health and beauty, there are many applications for charcoal. But what kind of charcoal absorbs odors most effectively?

    To remove odors from your home, it’s best to purchase activated charcoal, which is the same kind of charcoal used as an ingredient in toothpaste and skin care products.

    Activated charcoal has gone through a heat or chemical treatment to make it extremely porous. The higher level of porosity enables it to better absorb odor-causing molecules in the air.
